Post-Budapest, Ron Dennis looked like a man who needed his holiday. I was looking forward to mine, too. But there was a difference. He was leaving his squabbling kids behind as he headed for a short break in the Caribbean. I was picking mine up at Budapest airport.
They say you shouldn't mix business with pleasure, but an upside of doing the European races with a motorhome is that you've got a ready-made hotel in some interesting places - and you can take plenty of toys.
But anyone who thinks it's a glamorous life might just enjoy a bit of schadenfreude if I relate some details of my summer 'break.'
To say that plenty had gone on in Budapest was a bit of an understatement. I also had a feature to do during the following week, which I'd stupidly taken on at short notice.
